This was a nice place to stop in on a sunny summer day. They were giving out free samples of their Pilsner to everyone. I was under the impression that this was the only type of beer they produced, but it was tasty and refreshing. They have a nice seating area upstairs with large tables. This area overlooks a spacious... More

We came across this attraction when planning our trip to Toronto. We had never been to Toronto and were looking for interesting things to do. We were not disappointed!

The Steam Whistle tour is probably the best brewery tour I've taken. It lasted about an hour, and our guide was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. We had samples before and after and a full beer during the tour. They only do one kind of beer, and they definitely do it right! My teenage children were with us, and they loved... More

We took the tour and it was great. Our guide was excellent and she gave us a good idea of how they brew their beer. Lots of insights!

Located at the Roundhouse ... right across the road from the CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium, and the Skydome. For $10, the tour is well worth it ... with a couple of beers and a souvenir thrown in. Certainly recommended.

Just perfect. Close to CN tower, Hockey hall of fame and Ripley's aquarium. You can get a tour for 10 dollars who includes 2 samples and a beer. Cheap, fast and boy that taste good especially on a hot day. Really envoyed my experience.

If you're going to take the tour, you may as well pay the extra $5 and get a 6 pack of Steam Whistle. I've taken the tour 5 times and I really enjoy it. I learn something new each time. If you pay attention, you may even get to blow the whistle!!

For only $10 you can spend some time learning about a great brew and enjoy a drink or two. You can get a free sample before tour, receive a regular bottle while taking tour and why not have another free sample after done tour. Plus you also get a souvenir as well. Also everyone who works there really loves the... More

We stumbled upon this brewery before attending a Blue Jays game on a Saturday afternoon. This brewery was a perfect pre-game scene. The beers were good and very reasonably priced. It was busy but still plenty of room to stand and listen to live music. They also offer small snacks from food vendors like Momofuku. This turned into one of... More

Great place to visit! Tour is only $10 Can and comes with a souvenir glass and a cold beer on the tour. They also offer complimentary tasting and will let you have a couple. Neat operation in an old train depot with super friendly staff. Definitely worth a stop if in the area especially if you like pilsner beer!

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
